Small Property Owners
Show Hesitancy in Paying
According to County Treas
urer French, the payments of
the last half of the current real
^estate tax are coming in slowly.
The individual owners of small
parcels of property show a hesi
tancy in making payments and
*as yet there have been few prop
erty owners to pay up except the
large lumber companies, most of
which have already paid their
taxes. The last half of the cur
rent realty tax is due Nov. 1, and
if not paid upon that date a 10
per cent penalty is added.

is a great deal at stake
in the present municipal cam
paign in Bemidji. On the one
hand we find the business inter.
ests quite solidly arrayed in
favor of the election to office of
men who stand for nothing but
good government, on the other
hand we find a well known fac
tion desperately endeavoring to
retain its hold on political power.
It may pay the people of Be
midji to contrast the methods of
these'two elements. The busi
ness men appeal to the voters of
Bemidji to vote for the candidates
which they have nominated by
petition on the ground that they
are men who are honest, able and
stand for nothing but the city's
best interest. The other element
however, makes no appeal^ it
serves notice, through the office
of the county attorney, which it
controls, to certain powerful in
terests of Bemidji, "Vote for the
candidates we have named or it
will be the worse for you."
When such a condition con
fronts the people of a city, what
shall they do? Shall they listen
to the appeal of the business
man whose every interest is the
interest of the whole city, or
shall they listen to the threats 'of
a faction, whose only interest is
the political power which they
members of that faction may be
able to exercise?
The fight which the business
men are making for good gov
ernment has forced this faction
to put forward as their candi
dates men of probity and ability.
But the principal upon which
they stand as candidates is utter
ly wrong and every man in this
city knows it.
On the one hand we have busi
ness methods saying to us,"Vote
for our candidates and we will
build up a great city." On the
other hand we have factionalism
saying to us, '"Vote against us
and we will destroy you."
Let the man who is coerced by
self interest yote with faction
alism the man who has the wel
fare of the city ai heart will vote

declared at last night's inass
meeting that he had rather work
for$26per month in the woods
than be commanded how to vote.
If everyone in Bemidji felt the
same, the prostitution of public
office to political ends would be
a thing of exceedingly snort
